The day’s Pink Panther win and trophy went to the team of Chris Stewart “Chef”, Martin Smith “Fish” and Rob Smith “Swinger”.

Pat Hinchcliffe had the individual win for the day with a score of 24, collecting a prize of $50 plus the generous kitty.

The best dressed team in hot pink tutus were Hinchcliffe, Wes and Beryl Lynn, and Bundy the dog with a pink poodle hairdo.
